About the Author

John Einarson is a respected rock music historian and the author of several books including For What It's Worth: The Story of the Buffalo Springfield and Neil Young: Don't Be Denied. He lives in Winnipeg, Canada.


Drawing from more than 60 exclusive interviews, Einarson masterfully weaves flavorful, revealing quotes from country-rock originators like Chris Hillman, Randy Meisner and Jim Messina into this engaging, up-close look at the passions, chemistry, conflicts and politics that shaped the genre from 1963 to 1973. * Publishers Weekly *
Chock full of revealing material from more than 60 interviews, this authoritative guide covers a long-neglected era of rock history. Recommended for rock and music fans. * Library Journal *
Einarson covers all the breakups, makeups, and world-class twangin' of the genre that [Gram] Parsons styled "Cosmic American Music," paying plenty of attention to such subgenre stalwarts as Mike Nesmith (once of the Monkees), Linda Ronstadt, Rick Nelson, and Neil Young, not to mention modern mogul supreme David Geffen, who got his start in country rock. -- Mike Tribby * Booklist *
Desperados is loaded with interviews with all the significant artists of the era, but what really makes the book enjoyable is Einarson's refusal to perpetuate myths. -- Bob Cannon * Country Weekly *
Desperados is an intriguing read and one that will have you looking through used record bins for those long-abandoned copies of The Dillards' "Wheatstraw Suite" and Rick Nelson's StoneCanyon Band. * Country Standard Time *
